Previous students have complained about the timing (less time than the course time) and lateness of staff. Is this true? Are there any partial or total refund if happens?

The class has good materials but relies on students reading aloud the manual with a little discussion about each module. Although is 10 to 5, we finished early, and we had no opportunities to do the exercises in the manual. That is what we all needed. To practice the mini-lesson with the instructor's support. The instructor told us to do the exercises at home. I can read a manual and do grammar exercises on my own. I do not have to pay 325.00 for that experience.

This is a good class. Good text, but do not attempt to reference it during the class, or you'll miss out. You'd do better by focusing on the lecture, taking notes and cross-referencing the text at home. I did not rate this class 5 stars, because the instructor was late and did not address their tardiness. Overall, the class is a great grammer refresher.
